SubjectRe: Bug reporting script? (was: removal of redundant line in documentation)

> About bug reports, isn't a good thing introduce the sgi's lkcd (linux
kernel crash dump) into the main stream of 2.5? The main problem of lkcd in
2.2 was the lack of kiobufs.

the vmlinuz image of the distro, so when a bug happens the user only needs
to send the crash dump to the distribution kernel hacker, and he can discuss
the bug on lkml.

> This introduce a new kind of bug reporter, if the distribution makes
avalaible every new development kernel as a package, a user can download and
use, crash and report the bug without any knowledge about kernel. So the
marketing guys can say: 'help the development of linux without hacking,
report bugs'.



I think this would be a great idea.
